Ben Loory presents Tales of Falling and Flying
In conversation with Bud Smith
Ben Loory presents his second collection of fantastical and timeless tales, with the signature wit and style of his critically-acclaimed first collection Stories for Nighttime and Some For the Day. Tales of Falling and Flying is populated by dragons and swordsmen, star-crossed lovers and long-lost twins, restaurateurs dreaming of Paris and cephalopods fixated on space travel. Jeff VanderMeer says, “Parables, dark fables, quirky flash fictions: call them what you will, Ben Loory has perfected the form… Easily read, not easily forgotten.” Loory presents his work in conversation with Bud Smith, author of the memoir Work, followed by a signing and Q&A.
